Milton Keynes to be treated to a dynamic jazz performance

As one of the key players of the London jazz scene, Theon Cross has been dominating airwaves and stages recently.

He’s part of a thriving family network of young London-based musicians who have regularly supported one another in stretching and re-shaping the boundaries of the jazz genre.

Additional side-projects include performing and recording with individuals such as Makaya Mcraven, and featuring on Gilles Peterson’s compilation album We Out Here.

Within all this noise, Cross has also been leading his own trio project.

Cross makes the tuba his own, mixing together early New Orleans bass line influences as well as the synth soundscapes and rhythms from modern grime and trap.

His innovative style brings a new dynamic to the scene as he paves the gap between more traditional jazz styles and dance music.
